French performer Gérard Depardieu has been blamed for assault and rape by a youthful on-screen character, legal sources say.

He denies the assertions “totally”, his legal advisor revealed to AFP news office.

The charges against the 69-year-old were formally made to police by a 22-year-old French on-screen character on Monday, French radio reports.

Mr Depardieu is one of France’s most conspicuous on-screen characters, and has featured in movies, for example, Cyrano de Bergerac and Jean de Florette.
